Agorapulse CEO, Emeric ErnoultThis interview with Emeric Ernoult, owner of Agorapulse, a Facebook community management tool, is the ninth in an ongoing series of podcasts with individuals doing great things in social media marketing.

I am very honored to have the opportunity to interview Emeric Ernoult from Agorapulse on today’s podcast.

For those of you who are not familiar with Emeric’s work, he created a social media tool called Agorapulse just for helping you better manage Facebook Pages.

Here are some of the major businesses that use Agorapulse.

Just to prepare you, this week’s podcast with Emeric Ernoult clocks in at nearly 50 minutes. If you want to take it with you, it’s also available as a download as well.
